I'm Back! I think.

Well, that turned into a bit of a break, didn't it? Like I said in my last post, the Christmas season with a baby in tow turned out to be a little more overwhelming/crazy/insanely time consuming than I had predicted. I enjoyed it more than any Christmas of my life, but I have to say I'm kind of ready to get back into the everyday routine. 

I'm pretty sure I'll have a couple of posts all about Grayson's first Christmas coming in the next few days, but right now the idea of editing all those photos makes me want to cry a little bit. So I'll put that off for now. Today is for laundry and cleaning and trying to get things organized. Grayson got approximately one billion new toys, so I've got to deal with that....I told Arsen I'm pretty sure we need a new house just to fit everything comfortably. Sounds like a fun filled day, yeah?

Yesterday was Arsen's birthday, and we had a loooong day of celebrating. He's one of those unfortunate few with a birthday between Christmas and New Years, so it always seems to get a bit overlooked. But this year we made a point of doing a few fun things that I knew he would enjoy. In the early afternoon we had his family and my parents over for our final Christmas/his birthday, and it was so much fun. Tons of food, lots of presents, and some good quality family time. After that we went to spend the evening with some friends watching the Cowboys game and hanging out. It's a group we don't see that often, and a few of them had never met Grayson, so it was a lot of fun. I think overall he really enjoyed his 28th (yes, I'm a cougar)

So after a week of traveling, several Christmas gatherings, getting home and hosting a dinner just a couple of days later, and two "late" nights in a row, it's safe to say that I am completely and totally exhausted. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things on this here blog, but I'm not making any promises. It may take a couple days of recouping before I'm back at it like normal. 

Until then, please enjoy my most recent Instagram favorites. Or basically, please enjoy these pictures of my child. 


  1. I am so glad I'm not the only one who feels like they've been hit by a truck after the holiday break! Holy Moly! I don't think my house will ever be back in order. Grayson is such a cutie and that Santa has really nice teeth. HA!

  2. It will take me weeks to get this house in order. I started Christmas day but we've been so busy with other Christmas gatherings and such that it seems that it has only gotten worse. House in chaos equals me in chaos. Happy New Year!

  3. So I'm thinking about just copying and pasting this entry to my blog:) Since this is about what I'm going to be writing anyway---plus your pictures are so much cuter!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
